For one thing, it’s clear that other manufacturers see an opportunity to piggyback on Shure’s reputation for quality audio in meeting rooms as customers’ expectations for conference audio climb higher.
QSC announces integration between Shure’s Microflex Advance and Microflex Wireless lines and its entire QSC Q-SYS Platform.
Meanwhile, Biamp says its new TesiraFORTÉ DAN range of audio processors interface with Shure MXA beamforming line of microphones.
But Shure has ISE 2017 announcements of its own.
